Subject: Re: advice wanted - purchasing 1991 900S Turbo convertible

In 1999 I bought a 1991 turbo s 16v convertible for my wife with 170.000 KM on the clock for =80 9250. It was fully equipped with aero package (spoilers, suspension, aero 3-spoke wheels) and had 175 hp. Never been so happy with a car - at least every year someone asks me if we don't want to sell the car ! Had some problems though, installed two years ago a new roof (+/- 1000 Euro, installed). The airconditioning has given me some problems, the compressor failed (very expensive) but since a few years inoperative because all coolant leaked away. Don't need it anyway so never repaired - shouldn't be too expensive. Engine and gearbox are fine, although it does not shift like a BMW. Engine seems to be bullet-proof. Leaks a bit of oil and coolant, but every car has to demarcate its territory... The engine/exhaust makes a beautiful sound, and it is a pleasure to drive around at low speed with the radio turned off. This is a car I will never sell again. It is surely not a perfect car, and it's an older car, so no airbags etc, but my wife drives it daily (has now +/- 220.000 KM). Car is roomy enough for 4, has a large trunk. I would go for a full-turbo version, with manual gearbox, not the low-pressure ones. And the models with aero-package are sooo much nicer (in my eyes). regards, JB
